Difference in fluorescence spectra from human malignant and benign tumors, benign and normal breast tissues were measured. Spectral histograms from 40 samples show the diagnostic possibilities of this optical technology. Fluorescence from model fluorophores (nucleotides, amino acids, and proteins) were used to speculate on the sources of marked features of(More)
Studies of Raman scattering, fluorescence and time-resolved light scattering were conducted on cancer and normal biomedical media. Fourier transform Raman spectroscopic measurements were performed on human normal, benign and cancerous tissues from gynecological (GYN) tracts. A comparison of the intensity differences between various Raman modes as well as(More)
Cypate-octreote peptide analogue conjugate (Cytate) was investigated as a prostate cancer receptor-targeted contrast agent. The absorption and fluorescence spectra of Cytate were ranged in the near-infrared "tissue optical window." Time-resolved investigation of polarization-dependent fluorescence emitted from Cytate in solution as well as in cancerous and(More)
The image of an object hidden in highly scattering media was reconstructed using a fast, noise-resistant algorithm newly applied to diffusion tomography. A pulsed light source producing scattered and transmitted light is examined at multiple times. Multiple source detector pairs around the medium are used to obtain data in many different directions. An(More)
A translucent object hidden in a highly scattering medium is shown to be visible when the early portion of the transmitted diffuse pulse (snake photons) is detected. The use of the snake scattered photons to image objects depends on the scattering characteristics along a quasi-straight-line path that the photons traverse across the medium. A translucent(More)
Pathological condition of malignant tissue could be analyzed by spectral domain or time domain spectroscopy, the two being the complementary to each other in optical biopsy (OB) of cancer. This paper reports results of time resolved emission spectroscopy (TRS) of 24 excised tissue samples of breast and prostate (normal control = 12; benign = 4; malignant =(More)
Time resolved spectroscopic measurements with single-photon and multi-photon excitation of native molecules were performed ex vivo on brain tissues from an Alzheimer's disease (AD) and a wild type (WT) mouse model using a streak camera. The fluorescence decay times of native NADH and FAD show a longer relaxation time in AD than in WT tissue, suggesting less(More)
A mini review is presented on the theory, experiment, and application of the ultrafast fluorescence polarization dynamics and anisotropy with examples of two important medical dyes, namely Indocyanine Green and fluorescein. The time-resolved fluorescence polarization spectra of fluorescent dyes were measured with the excitation of a linearly polarized(More)
